Criminal Defense for Immigrants and Deportation Protection

You Can Be Deported Even for the Most Minor Criminal Conviction

Consulting an experienced criminal and deportation defense lawyer should be your first action. The right to an attorney is also provided to immigrants, no matter what their current immigration status is. You do not have to speak to police officers, ICE officers, investigators or prosecuting attorneys before getting legal representation.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and prosecutors will never be on your side in this case. Only a proactive criminal defense attorney will be able to defend your case comprehensively.

Retaining the services of an accomplished and experienced defense attorney is smart in all cases. The expense of an attorney depends on the magnitude of your case, but any fee can be made affordable. At the Law Offices of Thomas & Thomas LLC, we offer payment plans, and we accept credit cards for payment. Our attorneys represent clients throughout based in New York and New Jersey.

We only work in our clients’ best interests, and we will do everything in our power to make your experience with the criminal justice system as short and painless as possible.

What Crimes Can You Get Deported For?
Immigrants on visas and lawful permanent residents (LPRs) can be deported for conviction on many crimes (misdemeanors and felonies), including:

• Drug crimes
• Domestic violence
• Aggravated Sexual Assault
• Sexual Contact
• Assault
• Shoplifting
• Burglary
• Bank fraud
• Credit card fraud
• Identity theft
• Check fraud
• Gun crimes
• Traffic violations such as driving without a license and reckless driving
• Juvenile crimes
• Voting illegally
• Helping others enter the U.S. illegally

As an immigrant, you run the risk of being deported if you are convicted, make a plea bargain or plea for deferred action. Representation from an attorney who will advocate for you in and out of the courtroom is critical to avoiding jail, loss of immigration status and deportation.

We can help you build a strong case to fight an ICE hold, deportation or removal proceeding, or on appeal. You are innocent until proven guilty in a U.S. court. We will stand up for you, independently investigate the case against you and protect your rights through the process.
